Getting Smart Library access

Contact your library to arrange a short induction and to have your library membership updated to allow Smart Library access. You will be familiarised with the library layout and exits.

When you have Smart Library membership you will be able use any of our 14 Smart Libraries. If you wish to do this it is important to visit the library during staffed hours before using it in self-access mode, and to familiarise yourself with the exits and layout of any library you intend to access by checking the floorplan on the library web page.
